Definitions: Children living in concentrated poverty, which is defined as an area in which the census tract has a poverty rate of 30 percent or more.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, 2006-2010, 2007-2011, 2008-2012, 2009-2013, 2010-2014, 2011-2015,and 2012-2016 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, Tables B01001, B01001B-B01001H, and B17001.

Footnotes: Although overlapping 5-year time periods are shown for this indicator, the Census Bureau suggests comparing periods that do not overlap—for example, comparing 2006–2010 estimates with 2011–2015 estimates. This means waiting longer to identify a trend. However, in areas undergoing fundamental shifts in the size or composition of the population, change may be so substantial that it will be obvious after only a few years. For more information on making comparisons with ACS multi-year estimates, see Appendix 1 of the ACS General Handbook.

Non-Hispanic Black and African American is not available from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey Summary tables. Therefore, race/ethnic groups represented in this table are not mutually exclusive. The category of white includes only non-Hispanic white. The categories "Black or African American" and "Some Other Race" include both Hispanic and non-Hispanic.

S=Indicates suppressed data (less than 10 cases).
